  • Learn to understand the directions and diagonals of the wall of the wave
  • Improvement of the paddle technique through little tricks
  • We give you tips to improve your „Duck Dive“ technique

  • To surf the first easy cut-backs and little turns in the crest of the wave
  • To leave the wave before it closes out
  • To recognize currents and use them for getting in and out of a break

Am I a beginner or a intermediate Surfer?

To figure that out for sure we recommend you to read the next section thoroughly and decide about your actual level. You should be honest to yourself. There is nothing bad about being a beginner, no one is born as a professional and everyone has to start learning to surf as a beginner. We understand that you want to improve your skills and rip of the beginner label of your wetsuit, but even though you should know about the following section before you decide to take surf courses for intermediate surfers:

  • Surfing isn’t a sport you can learn easily, participating in a course of 5 or 10 days, you rather need a ton of motivation, dedication, technique, skill, patience and a lot of practice.
  • If you, for instance, took this year or the last one a surf course of 5 to 10 days, or you ever tried it with friends or you took surf lessons on a journey years ago… in 99% of the cases you are still a beginner. Even though you are able to surf a little and you won’t start from 0, you are still not an intermediate surfer.

How do I know, that I am an intermediate surfer? The moment of truth: Can you answer the following questions with a yes?

  • I have surfed more than 50 times
  • I am in a good shape because I do sports regularly
  • I am paddling stable on the surfboard and waiting on the board for a wave to come is no problem for me
  • My take-off is solid and in 4 of 5 waves I want to surf I don’t fall from my board
  • Mostly I can recognize if a wave is breaking to the left or to the right
  • I know about the duck-dive but I succeed it only some times
  • I have no problems with taking waves but I can’t distinguish between good and bad waves
  • Every once in a while I succeed in taking a long wave and surfing the wall


  • You are only ready for the surf course of level intermediate if you were honest to yourself and you can identify with the above listed skills. If you seek for this level, but couldn’t reach it yet, please don’t worry and take your time. We recommend you to choose the surf course for beginners and tell us what you already can do and what you want to imporve?
  • With effort, dedication and practice you will reach the intermediate level soon. Our essential concern is that you as a surfer know your actual level of surfing and that you don’t decide for a surf course that doesn’t fit with your actual level.
  • It’s great you that you want to leave the unlikely beginner label and develop your skills. But a reasonable and realistic self-assessment is a sublime virtue when it comes to surfing. A surf course that is beyond your skills can become a nightmare.
  • Finding yourself in a situation where you loose control and don’t know how to handle the situation can cause a negative influence or even make you hate the surfing sport.
  • Our priority is therefore that you have fun in a safe environment and you will learn to surf in a way that fits with your surfing skills.
  • Our goal is that you have a great time while during your holidays and you will love surfing also in the future. We will help you with all resources we have so you can reach your goals as soon as possible but also step by step so you don’t have to skip whole learning processes.
  • We believe you will only love this sport truthfully without getting too frustrated or even leave you behind in shock.
